FRIDAY, AUGUST i2, 1988

lasnost has not yet
reached the OVIR
office in Moscow.
The parents of Svetlana
Braun were told last week
that their request to emigrate
to Israel was denied in April.
The parents,Ilya and Izabella
Shteingardt of Moscow, are
long-term refuseniks who
have been turned down in the
past for knowing job-related
"state secrets."
The Shteingardts' son-in-
law, Keith Braun of Detroit,
sees the four-month delay in
informing his in-laws of the
denial as another means of
breaking the will of
refuseniks. "It shows the
USSR hasn't changed that
much" under Mikhail Gor-
bachev, Braun said.
Svetlana Braun arrived in
Detroit last December, three
years after she and Keith
married in Moscow. Svetlana
has been trying to aid her
parents' emigration to Israel.
The Shteingardts have ap-
pealed their emigration case
to the Supreme Soviet but
have been waiting nine
months for a decision. They
were among the refuseniks
who met with President
Ronald Reagan and Secretary
of State George Shultz in
June at the American Em-
bassy in Moscow.
Svetlana Braun is asking
Soviet Jewry activists to send
birthday wishes to her
mother. Svetlana's card for

her mother's Aug. 20 birthday
wishes that she will be able to
celebrate next year in Israel.
Izabella Shteingardt's ad-
dress is: UL. Sheremetyev-
skaya, 31-2-23, Moscow
